I’m a first time PC Builder in need of some help. I plan to game, work and stream. I already have the first part, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti which I picked up from Best Buy. I need help in knowing if these parts make sense, whether it’ll be overkill or if I’m missing anything. My Budget is $3000.00 and this does not include the 3080ti. Thanks in advance!

microcenter beats several of those prices; you know this is their forum not amazon's?
Yeah, I'll be going to Micro Center since I live in Columbus. PC Part Picker just had an easier format to copy the system I'm trying to build. Cant post links as a new user and that's all I could seem to do with Micro Centers PC Builder.
For the longest time I have always sworn by the Samsung SSD, and still do, but I have found that the Inland ones are very well worth looking at.
Also, with the Corsair theme you have there, take a look at the LC100 Nanoleafs. They add a lot of pizzaz
and that case will have plenty of room.
The Samsung 970 series is PCIe 3.0 while that motherboard supports PCIe 4.0 drives. I suggest that unless you need to save the few $ difference, get a pair of 980 which are 4.0
Those triangles are pretty dope, I'll be taking a look at those.
I didn't realize their was a difference between the 980 and 970, the price difference is pretty negligible so I will add the 1tb 980 instead. Appreciate the feedback.
